5:00am
good morning, everyone. it's wednesday, october 17. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everybody. i'm frank mallicoat. it is 5:00 on the nose. investments and so forth. >> candy, hold on a second. >> mr. president, i'm still speaking. >> i'm sorry. [overlapping speakers] >> mr. president -- >> governor romney... >> that's pretty much how it went the entire night. moderator candy crowley having a tough time controlling the two major presidential candidates in their second debate last night in new york. with just three weeks left in the race, the two candidates waged the fight of their lives. >> yes, they did. president barack obama and, of course, republican mitt romney they sparred with passion and grit, often times interrupting each other. sometimes even interrupting the moderator, candy crowley. they talked of many issues, the economy, immigration, lots of other issues, too. cbs news reporter randall pinkston joins us live now from hempstead, new york, with
5:01am
highlights and reaction. reporter: from the beginning to the end of the second debate it was a political slug fest. president obama and governor romney accused each other of not telling the truth. it was a very different exchange from the first debate. reporter: president obama and mitt romney wasted no time going after each other in the second debate. >> there were a whole bunch of oil companies -- >> i had a question and the question was how much did you cut the -- >> i'm happy to answer the question... >> reporter: in a snap poll of uncommitted voters 37% said president obama won the debate. >> i do think we'll get a bounce from this? yeah. how much? we'll have to see. >> reporter: romney gained a lot of momentum in the polls following the first debate and the his campaign aides say his performance last night will help him continue his surge. >> you're going to see the momentum continue here. i think a lot of the undecided voters who tuned in tonight heard from the governor himself how he would perform as president of the united states. >> reporter: romney comes out on top when voters were asked
5:02am
who would do a better job with the economy. president obama can claim victory on the question of who would be better for the middle class. >> foreign policy played a key role in the debate when the question turned to the attack in benghazi, libya. >> it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in benghazi an act of terror. >> get the transcript. >> he did in fact sir. >> can you say that a little louder candy? >> reporter: democrats crowed about the moderator fact checking romney. romney's team maintains the governor was correct. >> the governor got blindsided a little bit by a moderator who incorrectly tried to affirm what the president said. >> reporter: the two candidates will likely have a chance to answer more questions on libya next monday at the third and final debate which is focused entirely on foreign policy. in the cbs news snap poll 65% of uncommitted voters said they thought president obama had
5:03am
answered the audience's questions, 49% thought mitt romney was responsive. reporting live in hempstead, new york, randall pinkston, back to you. >> randall, what were considered the high and low points for each candidate last night? >> well, certainly a high point for governor romney was his enumeration of all the promises that president obama had made and had not been able to keep. and, of course, touting the fact that the economy is still in the doldrums. on the other hand president obama was able to flip some of romney's points. for example, when romney said the price of gasoline was almost three times as great as it was when president obama took office, president obama came back and pointed out that the reason the price of gas was so low four years ago was because the economy was in freefall that the nation was on the brink of recession and that governor romney he claimed was going to reinstate policies that would put the nation at economic risk again. >> both candidates certainly turned up the volume in this
5:04am
debate. one more to go. bob schieffer will moderate that one in florida on monday what can we expect in that one? >> well, that's going to be all about foreign policy. and that is an issue that president obama will probably feel quite comfortable with discussing except for the fact that now the romney/ryan campaign have this whole benghazi controversy that they are able to use questioning whether the president was forthcoming enough at the point that the attack occurred in benghazi. of course, last night president obama did have an answer for that almost scolding romney for suggesting that his administration would in the least way try to cover up an incident where four americans were killed including the ambassador. >> the american public gets it in three weeks. thank you, randall pinkston in new york. while the national poll gave the president a 7-point edge for the debate he fared much better in heavily
5:05am
democratic california. 56% said mr. obama was the clear winner. 32% felt mitt romney won. while 12% called it a draw. the poll was conducted by surveyusa exclusively for eyewitness news. and twitter users were fired up about the debate with more than 7 million messages sent during the town hall style forum. the parts that generated the most responses included a question to romney about immigration. the president criticizing romney on china and romney's response to a question about tax rates. and shortly after last night's debate the vice president joe biden was asked for his reaction in an interview for "cbs this morning." >> there was that one moment in the beginning of the debate where it looked like governor romney and president obama were so close that perhaps the secret service was going to have to get involved. what did you make of that moment? [ laughter ] >> i thought that was real. i mean, the thing i liked about this debate, it was so real. you know, both men, you know,
5:06am
intent on making their points and i just thought it was -- i thought it brought a freshness a realness to the whole thing in that town meeting setting. >> more of that interview can be seen just after 7:00 this morning right here on cbs 5. and be sure and check out our exclusive presidential forum at cbssf.com. every day, the candidates will weigh in on a different issue. hundreds gathered under the city hall rotunda in san francisco to remember ambassador chris stevens. stevens was killed last month in an attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. among those at yesterday's memorial service were mayor ed lee and senator dianne feinstein. the libyan ambassador to the u.s. expressed his government's regret. >> we're very sorry. you send us one of your best diplomats, but unfortunate will not be able to protect him. >> friends said stevens was a
5:07am

5:08am
lift up. the winds were about 5 knots going one way and the current going another. and as they turned, the would overturned. >> you'll learn a lot more from [ indiscernible ] if we hadn't done this so i think the team will come back a lot stronger and we now know how hard we can push it and where the limits are and you know, what to do safety-wise how to get off unharmed. >> this was the team's 8th day practicing on the bay and the strongest tide of the year and the wind did some major damage to the catamaran snapping up the 13-story-tall wings into pieces. now, america's cup say this won't affect the racing calendar next year. team oracle usa says that this is a first major incident that's happened with their newer and longer boats. live at pier 80, cate caugiran, cbs 5. warm weather causes high fire danger in the east bay, lawrence. >> yeah. i think most of the bay area

5:32am
the governor himself how he would perform as president of the united states. >> reporter: romney comes out on top when voters were asked who would do a better job with the economy. president obama can claim victory on the question of who would be better for the middle class. foreign policy played a key role in this debate when the question turned to the attack in benghazi libya. >> took the president 14 days before he called the attack in benghazi and act of terror. >> he did in fact, sir. so let me call it an act of terrorism -- >> can you say that a little louder candy? >> reporter: in the spin room, democrats crowed about the moderator fact checking romney. romney's team says the governor was correct. >> the governor was blindsided a little bit by a moderator who "incorrectly" tried to affirm what the president said. >> reporter: the two candidates will have a chance to answer more questions on libya next monday at the third and final debate which is focused entirely on foreign policy. now, this was the only debate where the public was allowed
5:33am
the opportunity to ask questions. in the cbs news snap poll 55% of uncommitted voters said they thought that president obama had answered the questions whereas almost as many, 49% thought that governor romney was responsive. live in new york, randall pinkston, back to you. >> randall, some of the pundits say this is one of the best presidential debates ever. and we're curious, your opinion, some of the highs and lows for them? >> reporter: one of the best but certainly one of the most contentious. whether that's good or bad we'll see especially to see what the public will think in the coming weeks as they sort it out. strong points for president romney. the strongest point i think was when he repeatedly pointed out that president obama had failed to fix the economy. he listed several of the goals that the president had announced when he was running for office goals that he had not achieved. president obama for his part tried on more than one occasion
5:34am
to point to inconsistencies in romney's current positions versus his earlier positions especially with respect to women's issues. when romney said last night he supported a woman's right to contraception, president obama quickly told the audience that same governor also opposes federal funding for planned parenthood one of the main sources of contraception services for women. >> they certainly covered a lot of issues. we'll see how they do in round 3. live in new york, randall pinkston, thank you. romney's 47% comment secretly recorded during a campaign fundraising appearance made a late cameo appearance at last night's town hall battle. >> i care about 100% of the american people. i want 100% of the american people to have a bright process stay with us future. >> i believe that governor romney is a good man and i also believe when he said behind closed doors that 47% of the
5:35am
country considered themselves victims, who refuse personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about. >> so while the national poll gave the president a 7-point edge for the debate he fared better in heavily democratic california. 56% said the president was the clear winner last night. 32% felt romney was your winner while 12% still can't decide. the poll was conducted by surveyusa exclusively for eyewitness news. so who do you think won the second presidential debate and tell us why. you can comment on facebook, twitter or email us at mornings@cbs5.com. hundreds of people gathered at san francisco's city hall to honor the life of ambassador chris stevens who died in an attack in libya. a younger sister remembered how he inspired her growing up. >> i saw the magic of the middle east through chris' wide optimistic eyes. >> friends said stevens was a good diplomat because he was
5:36am
interested in the lives of the libyan people. during the service the libyan ambassador to the u.s. expressed regret his government didn't protect the american envoy. stevens was a graduate of piedmont high school and uc- berkeley. 5:36. we're talking some good weather, aren't we? 90 degrees. >> if you had to call in sick today, if you had to call in sick, i think this is the day to do it. >> you didn't tell me that yesterday. >> you didn't ask. >> actually he did. [ laughter ] >> i would have told you to go. hey, folks around the bay area today what a difference in temperatures outside even right now. it's a cool 52 degrees in san jose with calm winds. but you see some of those winds into fairfield already 70 degrees. that gives you an idea that the atmosphere just above the surface is already warming up and it won't be long before a lot of temperatures mix right down to the surface and we start to crank up those temperatures. fire danger is running high especially in the sacramento valley. we have red flag warnings up into solano county, as well. otherwise fire danger will be elevated around the bay area though what a day it will be.
5:37am
80s outside and not going to be many temperatures like this for the remainder of the year so enjoy it while we have it. 90s inland, inside the bay 80s, at the coast even the numbers up in the mid-70s. should be spectacular weather but we also have some rain in the forecast. we'll talk more about that in a moment. first elizabeth with traffic. >> it's getting busy over at the bay bridge toll plaza. slight delays in some of the cash lanes. they have not turned the metering lights on yet so obviously, it's kinds of your usual commute right now heading into san francisco. elsewhere to our maps and other live traffic cameras. if your commute takes you along the peninsula, this is a live look at the candlestick and it looks great towards sfo if you have an early flight to catch. great to the south bay. by this time yesterday we were already seeing brake lights in sunnyvale. that traffic alert, an injury accident. everything is at the limit on all your major freeways. 101, 280 and the guadalupe
5:38am
parkway. coming up, we'll check mass transit. in the meantime, back to you guys. >> thank you. pieces of the america's cup boat that capsized in the bay and drifted into the ocean are now back onshore. the $10 million vessel flipped over yesterday near the san francisco yacht club. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran joins us now at the headquarters of team oracle and what a mess yesterday, right? >> reporter: right, frank. oracle team usa this is the first major incident they have had with these newer longer 72- foot catamarans but the most important thing is nobody was injured. this happened at around 3 p.m. yesterday. they were doing practice runs. team leaders say they knew something was wrong when the back of the boat started to lift up and sailors say the wind was not working in their favor. it was blowing in one direction and the current in the opposite. and that's when the boat went in along with some of the 13 crewmembers. >> creates a very steep wake and it's very easy to stick the
5:39am
nose this is on the boat and it capsized. >> i'm not sure what went wrong to be honest and we'll have to review all the data and the video. >> reporter: a few hours later the boat was completely overturned and the wing that's about 13 stories tall was under water not to mention the hull was thrashed. if you look at this map you can see how far the current pushed it away, past the golden gate bridge at least 7 miles out to sea. the team says this does -- or this will set them back but when we checked in with america's cup, they say it won't affect the races next year. we are live in san francisco's pier 80. cate caugiran, cbs 5 >> thank you. oakland officials are showing signs of a compromise in the face of a federal government takeover of the city's police department. cbs 5's phil matier reports oakland city council members are considering a plan to let an outside receiver take over opd's internal affairs division. a federal judge recently said the opd has taken too long to implement changes that were part of a brutality lawsuit
5:40am
